Hello there, I just downloaded TSE today. Installing and starting the game is fine, no probs. But the joy is rather limited facing the following problems:

1. I can choose whatever character I want, the game will always start with the three mages.

2. I will always be defeated during the first encounter (when it says: do not interfere to much and sit back and watch) for two reasons:

- no default action chain is set, so the characters will do nothing and await there death.

- when I fixed that, due to no. 1 above the only aggressive weapon there is, is chain magic. But unfortunately, this will do no harm to the enemies.

As I like the style and the graphics, I would like to play this game. So, if anyone can tell me what is going wrong, please help. Thanks in advance!

Hi Snabimi. Are you playing on Windows Vista? If so you may need to 'Run as Administrator' when starting the program. It sounds like these problems are the result of Vista preventing the program from writing the save files.

Thank you for the fast reply. I am actually not playing on Windows Vista. But the problem could be the same. I downloaded the software at home but on my company notebook. There, I do not have admin rights. I will try on my private PC then. I will let you know what happened.

Alternatively, if you don't want to bother with administrator stuff, there are some folders which act like you have admin privileges on anything you run in them anyways. On Vista they're the folders with your name (as in the name you log in with), and I think they're the same on XP.

this does not fix the problem, since TSE1 tries to create/modify two specific files inside C:\windows; i'm not sure if anything can be done to move this around.
